About a year ago, when I first started considering taking my kids out of public school, I wasn’t met with the kind of incredulous questioning that I expected after suggesting something so reckless and foolhardy.
For the most part people were excited and supportive and helpful.
Now you and I both know that this is a most dangerous place in today's world.
I was thinking that it could be more dangerous than she would ever suspect!
Because shouldn’t kids like that want to keep their mouths shut and keep their opinions to themselves? Because no one tells them that the way God made them isn’t cool enough.
She was set to arrive at the school on a Tuesday and I was anxious to have her working in a Mexican whorehouse by the weekend.
And if those people do disagree or make fun of them they won’t care. Not even every one of the kids who lives in this house is like that.
But no one asks the “normal” kids and adults if they were homeschooled. Because they’re so, you know, But the homeschooled kids who are like that, who are “annoying” are so different, so confident, so willing to allow themselves to be something that the majority of society has labeled as weird, that people can’t help but paint all homeschooled families with the weirdo brush.
And if someone else tries to tell you that any child of mine isn’t going to be at least a little weird no matter how they’re educated, they’ve lost their minds. Why is this perception of the weirdo homeschooler so pervasive? I mean what people mean when they say that homeschooled kids are annoying.
Why is it that despite the clear academic achievement of most homeschooled students, the fear of them “acting like that one weirdo guy I knew when I was a kid” is enough to turn otherwise supportive folks against the idea? Same parents, same environment, same rules….completely different reactions from their children. I mean kids who ask too many questions and know too much information and like certain stuff and refuse to like other things and don’t care what other people think about their silly hobbies and their know-it-all-ness.
